Caption: Human skin, 3D fluorescence deconvolution micrograph. Four different views, made up of stacked confocal light micrographs, showing the distribution of an antimicrobial agent (red) in human skin. Antimicrobial agents are important for preventing sepsis (blood poisoning), particularly due to burn injuries. It can be seen in both the keratin of the skin's upper layer (epidermis, green), and between the cells of the underlying skin layer (dermis), amongst the cell nuclei (blue). Magnification: x400 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
